Default Tiny Wasp

I found a tiny wasp about 1/4 inch long. I don't know what kind it is yet. I used the Sigma 105mm macro lens and reverse mounted the Sony 35mm on the end of the Sigma. Then stacked about 7 or 8 pictures. The wasp was dead and I tried using clear finger nail polish to "mount" it on a leaf. That's the "strand" you see under it's front leg. Tiny dead insect legs are very hard to "uncurl"!

Really nice detail in this one Clint.

You are like the Dr. Frankenstein of the insect world.

Amazing detail Clint!! It almost looks like a scan electron microscope image. Sad that it was dead, let's hope it was the end of a long happy life.

Another fantastic photo!

PS: your ruler is in inches or centimeters?

I'm impressed, I have tried to get them but nothing worth publishing. I'm thinking I need to get an extension tube or something to get into cheap real macro shots. I have a lot to learn about reverse mounts and extension tubes but it all sounds exciting.
